Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine We usually associate Lola with a rich sports racing and Indycar history but there have been occasional forays into the world of F1 over the years, the first instigated by Reg Parnell who felt that Eric Broadley was the man to build him cars for John Surtees to challenge Lotus with. Pole position in the cars first race was a promising start but the best results in the 1962 season were to be second places in the UK and Germany. The following season the Yeoman Credit money had dried up and Parnell ran slightly revised cars for Chris Amon and Mike Hailwood with little success. SMTSís kit parts are cleanly cast and thereís a fair amount of fine suspension detail. The basic shape of the car looks good and in each kit there are two clearly printed decal options. Instructions include plenty of colour information though some form of decal placement drawings would also have been useful.
Reasonably well cast white metal kits that build with ease. Open wheeled subjects usually accurate, road cars not always so. With hand-built models again single seaters usually better. Made in England.
